The Word Around the Ward
The Somerville Times published a great article on Ward 5 artist and resident, Carolyn Muskat! Her studio is located on Cedar Street and she is a constant participant in Somerville Open Studios every May. The article is a great read and and mentions her exhibit at Brickbottom that's running until March 8th.
Traffic and Parking is proposing some new drop off/pick-up points around Somerville Schools in an effort to ease the congestion during the peak hours by having older students walk from locations further away from schools, leaving more room for younger students to be dropped off. What are your thoughts on these new locations? Feel free to comment below.
Fellow Somerville activist Keri Lorenzo was none too happy with Leland Cheung's comment that people reside in Somerville because they're waiting to move to Cambridge. The Chair of the SDCC took to her Facebook and Twitter pages calling out the Candidate for Lt. Governor for his recent anti-Somerville remark. She Tweeted, "Does Cambridge's @lelandcheung really expect 2 be elected by @massdems dissing #somerville? #mapoli." As a candidate for office, you learn a lot of lessons out on the campaign trail, hopefully, Lelund has learned to watch his mouth around KLo.
For the past few months, the residents of Richardson Street have been experiencing an odd issue. A 30 pack of beer cans has been left on one side of the street now up to twice a week. The cans are empty, but neatly place in the box with the box being sealed shut. Hipster prank or lazy drinker?
Want some good Real Estate reads on Somerville? Curbed Boston has a very edgy tone on the 'Ville that includes good perspectives on what's happening in our 'hood.
